Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 39: Verses 23-30
Happy will be the dawn following this night for the ladies of the city (of Mathura); (nay,) their aspirations have been surely realized; (for) they will fondly gaze on the countenance-full of nectarean smiles exhibited by the corners of eyes-of Sri Krsna (the Lord of Vraja), even as He fearlessly enters the city. How, then, will Sri Krsna (the Bestower of Liberation) return to us, helpless rustic women-even though He has got other relations (too in Vraja), and although He is self-possessed-when His mind is captivated by the utterances, sweet as honey, of those ladies (of Mathura), and remains deluded by their bashful smiles and amorous glances ? Today surely a grand feast awaits (in Mathura) the eyes of the Dasarhas, the Bhojas, the Andhakas, the Vrsnis and the Satvatas- who will behold Sri Krsna (the Son of Yasoda, nicknamed as Devaki), the Spouse of Sri (the goddess of beauty and prosperity) and the (one) Abode of (all) excellences-as well as to the eyes of those that will see Him (driving) on the road (to Mathura). 'Akrura' (one who is not cruel) should not have been the name of such a ruthless fellow who is extremely hard-hearted in that he is going to take Sri Krsna (who is dearer than life) beyond the familiar path, not caring to comfort us (the womenfolk), sore distressed as we are.
